We're all hearing the buzzwords of AI, machine learning, chatbots, and next-generation testing. Does this mean that the days of traditional testing as we know and practice it are over? Eran Kinsbruner doesn't think so. Join Eran to learn about the clear transformation happening toward smarter testing techniques and tools. These approaches drive better pipeline efficiency and release velocity with high quality, and Eran thinks this means good things for the testing practice and practitioners. Discover the key trends that are happening around AI, machine learning, and bots in the web and mobile landscapes, and get the ability to identify some early adopters who are taking the lead in these domains. Learn some key requirements and skills that are required for a test engineer to shift toward the future of automation, as well as the changes testers will need to undergo in order to become future leaders in this space.
